So I've been looking around and reading up on the ATH M50's and I can pick them up for around 80-90 bucks. I've heard good things about these headphones but I'm not yet convinced that these are the cans for me. I was hoping you guys could help me out with this or suggest something else in that price-range that might better suit my needs. Here's what I'll use it for:
I play games a lot so I need some decent soundstage. I don't need something as crazy as the AD700's but I need it to be at least decent.
I like good crisp sounding bass. Call me silly for liking it but I do. I also like good sounding explosions and stuff in games so its a plus there too.
**NOT AN AUDIOPHILE**
So far the only thing that's stopping me from picking up the ATH-M50's is that everything I read about them says that they are specifically designed as monitor headphones for mixing/recording/dj. I don't do any of this stuff. That doesn't mean I don't like good sound, I love good sound, but I don't do any sound engineering.
Is the M50 at 80 bucks better than anything else out there for my purposes? or would you suggest something else that is more geared towards games and not recording.
Edit* I'm currently using Apex HP60's so anything is pretty much an improvement.
